Series: Fable #1
Author: Adrienne Young
For seventeen-year-old Fable, the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home she has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one, and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father, and demanding her rightful place beside him and his crew. To do so Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to her father.
But her father’s rivalries and the dangers of his trading enterprise have only multiplied since she last saw him, and Fable soon finds that West isn’t who he seems. Together, they will have to survive more than the treacherous storms that haunt the Narrows if they’re going to stay alive.
‘1. Keep your knife where you can reach it,
2. Never, ever owe anyone anything,
3 Nothing is free,
4. Always construct a lie from the truth,
5 Never, under any circumstances, reveal what or who matters to you.’
The rules Fable lives by.
Fable. Alone, betrayed and abandoned has kept herself alive and wants to get back to her Father so she can claim what’s hers. The crew of the Marigold and West help her, well not really for help, for money, but you know!
Omg, I loved Fable. She is gifted, tough and smart. Crafted that way partly by her parents and then what she had to endure belong alone and stranded. I loved she found her family. It made my heart swell.
Once I started this book I couldn’t put it down. I had questions, I wanted answers! It was one of those books that kept you guessing and on the edge of your seat for various reasons….and I absolutely loved it.
I was so intrigued about West….and the anticipation there for me was high, so high I wanted to squeal with delight!
I can honestly say this was a great read but it ended. And I was sad. I want more. Really soon!
